7:36 am
was struck by one office and put into a choke hold by another. >> other members of the police department continued to try to subdue him. and ultimately, he was tased, i believe, a couple of times. >> reporter: according to this complaint, police say the force was justified because sofka, knowingly, intentionally or recklessly caused or attempted to cause bodily injury to a police sergeant. it goes on to say sofka and approximately three others punched and kicked the sergeant in the head and body. sofka maintains the fight has nothing to do with the sofka wedding party. >> reporter: we understand that additional arrests are being considered. sofka has been charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and creating a riot. he could face five to ten years in jail. >> thanks so much. for more, let's bring in dan abrams. one of sofka's lawyers' main points was the brawl had started
7:37 am
by the time he got there. how relevant is that to the charges he's facing? >> it's somewhat relevant. but you're still guilty if you escalated the fight. the question isn't sort of who started it. the question is, what did he do? did he punch? and remember, his defense is now saying, this wasn't self-defense. they're saying he was purely a victim. his girlfriend is down on the ground. he, quote, extends his arm. and a police officer comes from behind him. and the next thing he knows, he's getting tased and hit with batons and, et cetera. his lawyer is portraying him as a victim here. >> how does the defense combat the police officer's words against his client's words? >> it's tough for the defendant. the videotape is going to be very important. in cases where there's a videotape, you start seeing the analysis go frame-by-frame.
7:38 am
every movement that occurred on the videotape, if it ultimately goes to trial, becomes absolutely crucial. you have eyewitnesses, other police officers. there are a lot of people there. you have a lot of potential eyewitnesses. and a videotape. >> and potentially more arrests in this case. >> the investigation is ongoing. >> dan abrams, thanks so much. we appreciate it. time, now, for the weather and sam champion. >> amy, when you have stress in your life, how about a moment of zen? how about this? how about this shot. yeah. you can just breathe into this picture from miami. wait, no. wait. no. that doesn't help at all. that picture from miami. i don't know. it works for me. it can completely change me from angry to happy. >> sam, you're never angry. >> i know. >> you're never angry. >> maybe it will work -- why are you behind the screen? maybe it will work for you, too. 86 degrees, on target in miami.

8:31 am
movie called "kilt." and i went to the concert. they haven't gotten any older. i don't know how i got older and they haven't. i was inspired. the only time i was allowed to stick my tongue out. they were like, don't stick your tongue out at anybody. >> all right. everybody, you might remember. we did a live "play of the day" back in july. i actually lost my wallet in a cub. b but it was found by a fellow named mark christiano. and he brought it back to me. i was there a couple nights at home. i had the thai phone. sam comes home and you say -- >> i say, josh, i found a wallet in a cab. i looked through it. there's money and credit cards. but there's no card in there. i know her name. can we hit the internet and try to find her? >> we hit the internet. and guess who we found.
8:32 am
we found martha kilner. there she is. we found the wallet. and we actually called her. and we said, hi, this is josh elliott and sam champion from "good morning america." and -- i don't want you to think we're weird. >> i do want to tell you, i did go through your wallet. but the oddest thing was, there was this picture, martha, that really was astounding to me. that you leave that in your wallet. we love it. we thought we'd give you this so it would take up less room. here's a picture of the two of us. and we did pay for the thai food with the cash in your wallet. >> but it was delicious. are you happy? >> i'm very happy. and i believe in good samaritans. and new york is great. >> and i told her, i said to sam, she'll wait a day because she's going to get the wallet back. thank you, martha. >> you couldn't have just staged
8:33 am
this? >> no. >> sorry. >> i will say this. sam, you're running out of time for weather. we know what happens when you run out of time for weather, sam. >> we should get to it. let's get to the boards. i think there's one or two things we probably need to touch on this morning. let's start with your twitter or facebook pictures. miami, how it lifted our spirits one more time. and cardiff by the sea in california. another gorgeous spot that's going to be picking up rain. in the northwest, it's been like 80 days of the least amount of rain in seattle. you're getting ready for a wet couple of days. a quick look at where the storms will go today.
8:34 am
>> okay. we're going to do the kiss makeup. you're really going to do this? all right. josh is going to do it. all that weather is brought to you by -- come on, josh. >> josh. >> all that weather was brought to you by pedigree. >> amy, save me. and thank you, everybody. we put guest host brooke shields to work for mom confidential. she's asking mom what they think about hot-button issues and parenting. and brooke went for it, getting answers to some of the topics heating up the mommy blogs right now. let's take a look. >> i'm a mom. and i have a whole problem with soda. what do you think about giving your kids soda? >> i don't like giving my children soda. >> you have four kids? >> yes. >> and do you let them drink soda? >> it's a treat. if i held it back from them, they probably would just want it more.
8:35 am
>> what do you think is too much to spend on your kids, as far as clothes? >> they grow up so fast. when you're working really hard for a living, you really have to pinch your pennies. you want something with style. but something that's easy to wash. >> i'm totally different with the girls than it is for boys. >> and it's a problem. >> what do you think about alcohol being served as like little kids' parties? >> i probably would prefer not. the kids could drink it by accident. >> do you have a facebook page? >> i do. >> she has a facebook page. all of her messages and friend requests some to my account. >> i don't do any of it. i'm leery about that kind of stuff. you know? in moderation. i think it's fine. >> what ages are your kids? fi. fixing to be 8. just turned 6. and 19 months.
8:36 am
>> bless you. wow. you're my new hero. >> here professionals here. we're going to do this when we're being pelted with guitar picks here. they can't wait to get the party started. we heard about what other moms think about their kids and hot topics. we have daughters the same age, actually. 9 and 6. >> same age. how do you handle sodas and sugary drinks? >> i hate them. my kids are always begging me because they go to parties or go to my mother-in-law's. hello. >> my mom loves to give them sugary drinks. >> she's like, mom, i had coke. and you're like -- i get on the phone with my mother-in-law. and it's hard to avoid, when they go to a baseball game or something. but there's none in our refrigerator. >> i'm in the same boat as you. >> and my husband will sneak one. and he has to put it separate. >> what about facebook? that's another tough one. >> i think it's really tough. i don't have a facebook.
8:37 am
obviously, none of my kids do. my 6-year-old has facebook. >> some 6-year-olds do, though. >> it's crazy because the access. i'm not worried about them. i'm worried about everybody else. i'm worried about the security. i'm worried about the access they have, the bullying that happens on facebook. the bullying that happens on the internet. what's inappropriate. i mean, you know, i can't be where the kids stare at them all the time. >> some of the answers that the moms on the street gave you surprise you? >> not really. i thin need and desire for us as moms to keep our children as innocent as we can. and we're trying. especially in this era. we're trying to balance with all of technology. but i think it was endearing, you know, the alcoholic parties. i think every party i go to, if it's past 5:00. functions. by the time it gets there, you're jonesing for the wine. it's like, i understand them being there. but it's a hard one. if you have a drive, forget it.
8:38 am
>> it's funny. speaking of the parenting issues, one of my favorite shows right now is "the middle." we see them with these issues. you're making a guest appearance. tell me about your rough-and-tumble character. >> i'm her neighbor. i'm a beer-drinking -- i'm not the epitome of a quality mom. my little kid's in cowboy boots and a diaper. and i drink beer and smoke cigarettes. and it's the antithesis of what i believe in. exactly, of course. >> we want to put you on the hot seat a little bit and ask you fun questions. you started so young. what do you like better? stage or screen, brooke? >> i'm going to say stage. >> i love the stage, too. best vacation destination? snow or sand? >> sand. you said that with such longing. what do you do more? texting or calling? >> calling, actually.
8:39 am
>> all right. tell us about your girls. girly girls or tomboys? >> one's a girlie girl. and one's a tomboy. >> my situation, too. tell us your guilty pleasure. it's not soda. >> it's not. it's beer. >> i like that. >> you have a favorite beer? >> it's belgium. yeah. and i started drinking it when i was breast-feeding, if you can believe that. there was a maid that said it would make my milk come in. great. >> you have been so much fun. we can see brooke on "the middle" on wednesday, at 8:00, 7:00 central. do you think moms should drink on play dates? tell us on goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! coming up, are you ready for kiss? there we go. legendary rock band, performing live. thanks for the guitar picks, guys.
